Cowboy Garage (Instrumental)
With hints of truck drivin' cowboy honky tonk, "White Truck" is the kind of song that would warm up the band before the front man comes out to woo the chicks. Just catchy enough.
This is a rough textured song with a basic riff and bluesy organ. great drums and solid bass work support a lead riff that's too repetitious. variations in octave and texture would fix that. The break is kinda cool.
"Oldtimer" is a saucy electric blueser with charm and guts. Slow moving and emotional, with a thick sound and gutsy edge. Quite nice.
Heavy churchyard after midnight doings are chronicled in this aptly titled riff rocker. The feel of the sixties frat rock horror instro is captured well.
Tuff drums run under a grodie lead guitar while the organ whirls like an old soul instro is nearby. Bass grumble completes the sound. Edgy rock 'n' roll garageland... did I mention tuff?
